    Any mention of Admaral Thomas Cochrane who was pivotal in Chile actually managing to gain their independence from Spain? The UK establishment don't like to mention him. Wonder why?

    What????

    He is buried in Westminster Abbey with the following epitaph

    'Here rests in his 85th year Thomas Cochrane Tenth Earl of Dundonald of Paisley and of Ochiltree in the Peerage of Scotland Marquess of Marenham in the Empire of Brazil GCB and Admiral of the Fleet who by his confidence and genius his science and extraordinary daring inspired by his heroic exertion in the cause of freedom and his splended services alike to his own country, Greece, Brazil, Chile and Peru achieved a name illustrious throughout the world for courage, patriotism and chivalry. Born Dec 14 1775. Died Oct 31 1860”

    Strange way not to mention him wouldn't you think?
